Girard-Perregaux celebrates the art of cinema with a special edition of the Hawk Collection with the Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland special edition. This special timepiece highlights once again Girard Perregaux’s passion for the cinema, and its engagement to celebrate movies. The all-new Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland features a black ceramic case measuring 44 mm in diameter and 15.4 mm in thickness with a gleaming satin-brushed 18K rose gold bezel. The watchmakers pay playful homage to Hollywood with a keen eye toward the materials they used with alternating matte and gloss finishes accentuating the relief carving of the case.
The cream color dial works features a honeycomb pattern that is accentuated by its black counters carved in relief, its black flange, a date aperture at 6, a running seconds register at 3 o'clock and its rose gold applied markers with luminescent material. The chronograph functions are traditional but its performance is pervasive, fitted with rectangular pushers and a 30-minute register at 9 o'clock. The finish of the dial is strikingly beautiful and extremely sporty, all perfectly visible via the anti-reflective treated sapphire crystal on this watch.
The beating heart inside the Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland is the automatic movement Girard-Perregaux calibre GP03300-0073 that is fully visible via the display case back. The calibre features 61 jewels and provides a power reserve of 46 hours when fully wound while beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph. The movement is nicely finished with Côtes de Genève and perlage.
The Chrono Hawk Hollywoodland, of course, was designed in tribute to Hollywood with a dream of a watch paying fealty to the industry that makes dreams spring vividly to life. This timepiece also highlights the Brand’s commitment to celebrate movies as in 2012 Girard-Perregaux announced it would be the Exclusive Timekeeper and a Founding Supporter of the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, to be located in Los Angeles. On the wrist, the watch wears very comfortably thanks to its technological rubber base coated with black alligator and folding buckle in PVD titanium with ceramic cover. If you are ready to spend an spectacular night at the Chinese Theatre this is a watch that is perfectly suited for that crazy night in the heart of Hollywood.
